Incognito named ambassador of anti-bullying org
7:38 PM ET
NFL offensive lineman Richie Incognito was announced Friday as the “first national ambassador” of an anti-bullying organization based in Los Angeles.
Boo2Bullying, a nonprofit group founded in 2011 with the mission of “outreach, education, mentoring, inspiration and support for our youth and their families,” said Incognito will be introduced at an event later this month. Incognito, who is a free agent, was at the center of a bullying scandal while a member of the Miami Dolphins in 2013.
NFL investigators concluded Incognito and two of his teammates engaged in a “pattern of harassment” against then-Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin. The Dolphins suspended Incognito, who disputed claims made in the NFL’s investigation, and he later spent the 2014 season out of football before signing with the Buffalo Bills in 2015.
Incognito abruptly retired in April by sending a tweet to the NFL Players Association that he was “done” playing football, days after also firing his agent in a tweet. Incognito later asked the Bills to release him from the retired list in hopes of playing for another team; Buffalo did so on May 21.
